Reflection: Online Resources Create Your Own Utopia (Day 1 of 2) - Section 2: Create Your Own Utopia Overview


I'm sure I'm not alone in the fact that I have benefitted many times over my 11 years of teaching from the creativity and generosity of other teachers. One of the things I love about the Common Core standards is that there are so many more opportunities for this to happen (ala this project!). 

I know a little reflection in the middle of a lesson that has been posted as a means of paying it forward is not enough of a thank you, but I thought it was worth taking the time to thank those who gave me the basis for my activity today...and those who have helped me when I'm in panic mode on Sunday night wondering how in the world I am going to teach (fill in the blank) tomorrow morning. 

Thanks, fellow teachers, for sharing. I hope you can benefit even a fraction of from my lessons the amount I have benefitted from yours.
